Default Fiesta ST, Will ford finally step up to the plate?



The Ford Fiesta ST shown off in near production-ready form at the Geneva Motor Show will officially be sold in North America after all, according to Fordís Marketing Manager. Speaking at a press event at the Laguna Seca raceway, Steve Ling indicated that the Fiesta is the next Ford model to get the ST treatment.

AutoGuide shared this news, which isnít too much of a surprise considering a concept version of the car was shown off on U.S. shores at the Los Angeles auto show as well.

A follow-up call from Motor Trend to Fordís headquarters brings some doubt into the equation, however, as officials said a decision for North American sales of the Fiesta ST hasnít yet been made. Sales are confirmed for Europe, however.
If it does indeed arrive, the car is likely to be offered as a five-door hatchback only, just like its larger Focus ST stablemate that is due to go on sale in the U.S. anytime now.

The car will be powered by a 1.6-liter EcoBoost inline-four thatís turbocharged to make 178 horsepower and 177lb-ft of torque. It would put it down to the road thanks to a six-speed manual transmission. It would also borrow the Focus STís Torque Vectoring Control system to keep torque steer at bay and a three-mode stability control system.

When the car does arrive, it should get the same goodies as Euro-market cars under Fordís OneFord global strategy. These include Recaro seats and other performance and visual goodies.
